What sets the Tecno Spark 6 Go apart from other modern phones is the removable back cover. However, this way you will not have access to the battery as it once was. The quality of construction and assembly of the case is good. No gaps are visible anywhere.
The material from which the case is made is plastic. It has an interesting glossy finish, which, however, goes with a minus - traces of your fingers remain. The flowing colors on the back of the Tecno Spark 6 Go create a pleasant look. At different angles the picture changes.
The front of the smartphone offers a satisfactorily large display with a teardrop-shaped slot and rounded edges. The device lies comfortably in the palm. The colors are close to natural, and the brightness is enough to read the contents of the screen on a sunny day.
In the Tecno Spark 6 Go you get an IPS display with comfortable viewing angles. Its diagonal is 6.36 inches. The resolution is not high - HD+. The resolution of 1600x720 pixels gives a pixel density of 269 inches.
With a completely white screen, the maximum brightness of the screen reaches 411 cd/sq.m., And the minimum - 4.9 cd / sq.m. These indicators are comfortable - in one case, when it is light outside, and in the other - when you have a habit of working with the device in complete darkness.
The Tecno Spark 6 Go is based on the MediaTek Helio A20 single-chip system, which was introduced in early 2020. This platform is new and slightly weaker than the Helio A22. The smartphone's performance is not high, but this is expected given the four Cortex-A53 cores. The graphics processor is a PowerVR GE8320.
Note that the Tecno Spark 6 Go is available in several versions depending on the memory. You can find it with 2GB, 3GB or 4 GB of RAM and 32GB or 64 GB of internal storage. If necessary, you can insert a microSDXC memory card.
In the Tecno Spark 6 Go you get a fingerprint scanner that is not as accurate as you would like, but it works quickly. A time of 0.3-0.4 seconds elapses between finger touching and full switching on of the device. This result is more than good.
Tecno Spark 6 Go has a dual rear camera, whose main module is 13-megapixel with an aperture of f / 1.8. It is complemented by a 2-megapixel sensor that serves to create a bokeh effect. Given these features, you can take good quality photos with the rear camera. Tecno has improved the processing algorithms and this can be seen in the results. In the dark, the shots are not so good, in addition, the manufacturer has not provided a special night mode.
As an advantage here we can point out the presence of a bright rear flash. Thanks to it, the sensors capture more light and the photo capabilities of the Tecno Spark 6 Go are better. With this smartphone you can record video with a maximum resolution of FullHD at 30 frames per second. There is no stabilization, and autofocus works surprisingly fast.
The front camera of Tecno Spark 6 Go single - 8-megapixel, equipped with LED flash.
The interface enjoys a good set of panoramic photo modes, plenty of settings related to frame resolution, as well as a timer, watermarking, automatic scene recognition, HDR activation and more.
